this is basically will happen to my control pad. i bought the 3ds on launch and i play it regularly, but i noticed cracks that were appearing alongside the ends of the (+ shape) of the control pad. they are just cracks now and have not started to flake yet. now, i realize that this is not affecting a large portion of users but is it possible that nintendo will recall the affected systems? should i contact and alert them?

My d-pad is still fine and I've had it since launch. Maybe its only the aqua blue color that has this issue.

It's not a big enough issue to warrant a recall, nor is it affecting millions an millions of users. They have something about paint chipping and flaking in the warranty on their site.

i do have the aqua blue 3ds and i probably have played around 100 hours. i think i'm just going to send it in to nintendo.

Are those buttons always painted? My red DS XL pad looks like plastic, but it has me wondering...
